Chelsea leading Balogun race

Chelsea are leading the race to sign Arsenal striker Flo Balogun.

He has returned to the Emirates after a highly successful season on loan in France with Reims, for whom he scored 21 goals.

That form saw him attract interest from a host of clubs across Europe, including both Milan clubs, RB Leipzig and Monaco.

But his future may lie closer to him, with reports that his representatives have been in touch with a switch to West London.

Balogun, who recently switched his international allegiance from England to the USA, and who has already made his debut for their senior national team, is under contract at the Emirates until 2025.

However, he has made clear his intention not to be sent on another loan next season, and it is difficult to see Mikel Arteta giving him the first team place that he wants if he is to continue at Arsenal.
